The goal of a TAT coalition build is to establish an effective and sustainable working relationship between key leaders in the trucking and busing industries and law enforcement statewide, in order to combat the crime of human trafficking.
While TAT plays a substantial role in spearheading the initial coalition, and will always make its resources available, it is the Office of the Attorney General (or statewide task force) and the State Trucking Association (along with a handful of other agencies, potentially including the State Bus Association and/or State Pupil Transportation Association) who assume the lead moving forward, insofar as they are local agencies capable of galvanizing the necessary stakeholders on both sides. These efforts are intended to result in the coordination and implementation of effective strategies and actions, in partnership with one another that will close loopholes to traffickers who so easily exploit both victims and legitimate businesses for criminal gain.
